ABS-CBN heartthrob Paulo Avelino is raring to join the powerhouse cast of the network’s hit primetime series On the Wings of Love, starring James Reid and Nadine Lustre.
The show’s creators, Dreamscape, made the surprise announcement was on Wednesday, which instantly thrilled teleserye addicts on social media, who obviously haven’t forgotten Paulo’s hot scenes in his last primetime project in Bea Alonzo’s Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon. Yes, he was the sensual chocolatier!
Paulo will play Simon, the new boss of Nadine Lustre’s Leah at the advertising firm where she works.
According Dreamscape honcho Biboy Arboleda, Paulo’s addition to On the Wings of Love, fondly nicknamed OTWOL by its huge following, will spice and shake things further between the James Reid’s Clark and Leah, as well as rival Jigs in Albie Casino.
“Paulo’s character will bring a new kind of excitement because we firmly believe that Simon’s character is fit to Paulo. We patterned it after him and added new elements on how people are in the advertising industry so that Simon will have a contrast to Clark, but blends well with Leah,” Arboleda elaborated.
OTWOL is consistently making social media abuzz every night and is maintaining its strong lead on its time slot. It airs weekdays Pangako Sa’Yo on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida.
As man of the hour, Paulo quipped, “Ma-thre-threaten siguro si Leah at Clark sa show, pero not in real life!”
